Or is it because 5200 swaps bytes around on PCI.  It sure looks to me
like Freescale has made a major screwup in their implementation of
PCI on the 5200.  I'd love for somebody to prove me wrong about this,
but I'm afraid I'm right.  I was under the impression that CoralP worked
nicely on 5200, but now I see that it also requires software tweaks to work
on 5200.
